I am a traveler fond of food, drink, and great conversation. For work, I started GlobalWrites, a copywriting agency based out of Houston, TX. I'm a collector of people, stories, and experiences.
== What I'm Like as a Guest ==
I'm extremely respectful, trustworthy, and tidy as a guest -- so much so that many people have even invited me back to house sit for them! I can be as quiet or as gregarious as my hosts. I'm quite independent but always love good company. Since I own my own business, I work a lot. But I also play a lot. This tends to mean I get very little sleep! However, as a guest in someone's home, I respect the rules (and hours) of the house.
I'm just as comfortable in a resort as I am in a campground. I generally prefer staying with friends or renting apartments. If reliable, frequent, safe public transportation is available, I prefer to use it than rent a car. I usually only travel with a carry-on suitcase (with ukulele!) and a laptop, depending on destination. I would rather go to a farmers market than a clothing store any day of the week. I see the value in taking tours but would rather explore on foot.
== What I'm Like as a Host ==
I'm extremely friendly and am happy to share information, give recommendations, show you around, buy you a drink, cook you a meal, introduce you to people. I'm also respectful of your privacy. I try to anticipate every need and accommodate all reasonable requests.
